What Old World monkey has a strange nose and webbed fingers? Well if you guessed the Proboscis monkey, you are correct. I will talk about what the monkey looks like, where it lives, and its enemies.
These Old World monkeys vegetarians. Ninety-five percent of the proboscis monkey’s diet is Mangrove leaves. They also like to eat unripe fruits and occasionally insects. January to May they are frugivorous, or fruit eaters. June to December they are more folivorous, or leaf eaters.
